Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative Question 788

Under SQ 788, an individual who obtains a Medical Marijuana License from the state of Oklahoma may consume marijuana legally and may legally possess up to:

  • 3 ounces (85 g) of marijuana
  • 6 mature marijuana plants (defined as plants that are in the budding stage)
  • 6 seedling plants (defined as plants that are in the vegetative stage and are not yet budding)
  • 1 ounce (28 g) of concentrated marijuana
  • 72 ounces (2,000 g) of edible marijuana
  • 8 ounces (230 g) of marijuana in their residence

Initially, smokable cannabis flower was not available, but this part of the legislation was repealed.

"State Question 788 legalized marijuana, also known as cannabis, for medical purposes in Oklahoma. The measure required a state-issued medical marijuana license to have a board-certified physician’s signature. The measure required no specific qualifying conditions to receive medical marijuana.

The measure allowed people with licenses to possess up to 3 ounces of marijuana on their person and 8 ounces of marijuana in their residence. A 7 percent tax was levied on marijuana sales, with revenue allocated to administrative costs, education, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

The measure required licenses to operate dispensaries, commercial growing operations, and processing operations. The measure prohibited municipalities from restricting zoning laws to prevent marijuana dispensaries."

Does Oklahoma accept out-of-state cards?

Oklahoma has medical marijuana reciprocity, and so recognizes medical marijuana cards from out-of-state. So, if you have a valid MMJ card from Arizona, California or any other state with a functioning medical marijuana or cannabis ID program, it is recognized as valid in Oklahoma! However, it is wise to call ahead to see if you can purchase at a given dispensary.


Will my Oklahoma card be accepted in other states?

An Oklahoma medical marijuana card is valid in other states with reciprocity.

The following states accept or recognize out-of-state medical marijuana cards:

  • Arizona
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Montana
  • Nevada
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • Puerto Rico
  • Rhode Island
  • US Virgin Islands
  • Utah
  • Washington, D.C.

However, this does not always mean you can purchase cannabis at a medical marijuana dispensary (non-medical adult use is fine) – just that you are protected by the state’s medical marijuana laws to some extent. It is wise to call the dispensary ahead if you are a medical cannabis patient from another state and you intend on purchasing medical marijuana.

The qualifying condition usually has to match between states, so if your qualifying condition is accepted in one state and not your visiting state, your recommendation is not necessarily valid. You are also beholden to the visiting state’s medical marijuana laws, not the state that issued your card.

The following states accept out-of-state applications, allowing a visiting patient application to use medical cannabis for the duration of their stay:

  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Hawaii
  • West Virginia (cancer patients only)

Are there employment laws protecting medical cannabis card holders in Oklahoma?

Employers are still within their rights to test employees in Oklahoma for marijuana, regardless of cardholder status. Nothing in the state medical marijuana law limits an employer’s right to test for marijuana and/or its metabolites.


What are the medical cannabis product testing requirements in Oklahoma?

Cannabis in Oklahoma must be tested for cannabinoid content, mold, metals, pesticides or other contaminants. Cannabis products are tested by third-party labs.


Where is it safe to purchase cannabis in Oklahoma?

In all states with a medical marijuana program, the only way to purchase medicinal cannabis products is via a legally-licensed dispensary or pharmacy, or another legally designated space to purchase cannabis. Only those with a legal license to sell cannabis can actually do so.


Where is it safe to consume marijuana in Oklahoma?

All states with a medical marijuana program have some restrictions on where a person can legally use cannabis. Near schools, nurseries, parks or other places where children are expected to be, using cannabis is illegal. Use of cannabis on or in federal land or buildings, hospitals or any other such healthcare space is also illegal. Private members club and landowners may also prohibit cannabis use on their property or restrict it at their discretion.

The safest place to use medical cannabis is in the safety of your own home. It is wise to use common sense and generally keep consumption out of public view, and utilize discreet consumption methods wherever possible.
